Two JMB members arrested in Pabna
Police have arrested two members of banned militant outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) in Pabna. The two men have been in jail for a long time in several cases, police said. Shafikul Islam, 30, and Ziaul Karim Sujon, 32, were detained from the town's Radhanagar area during Sunday's special raids, police said on Monday. They said the men, hailing from Pabna, are on the police headquarters' list of militants. Pabna sadar police's OC Abdur Razzak said they raided various locations in the city after being tipped off that the militants were in Pabna. They are accused in three cases filed with the sadar police, OC Razzak said. “They were behind bars for quite some time in several cases filed with Jhenaidah and Shariatpur police,” he added. Their arrest comes only days after Barisal police arrested six close associates of executed notorious JMB leader Siddikur Rahman, alias Bangla Bhai. Bangla Bhai, second-in-command of the militant group, was executed with its founder Shayakh Abdur Rahman and three members on March 29, 2007. Former Majlish-e-Shura member Salauddin alias Salehin now heads the old faction of the militant group, which was eventually banned on February 23, 2005. In June last year, it claimed responsibility for over 1,100 attacks killing over 70 people. Recently, a new faction of JMB, claiming to have ties with Islamic State, has emerged and claimed credit for 26 attacks, in which at least 45 people were killed, since September 2015.
